(London Evening Standard)   In London, hipsters are OVER and cutesters are the in thing. "The hipster is more concerned with attitude and authenticity. The cutester is friendly and open and aware that fun usually comes at the expense of cool"   (standard.co.uk) divider line

henryhill: Only one question: Are cutester chicks hot?


They're more cute than hot. If you want hot you should go for a hotster, but they can be hard to approach sometimes, unless you're a richster in which case go for it.

I co-opt bits of pop culture and mash them together in a way that clashes a bit to create a carefully contrived effect. I know it's not cool and I don't care.  Don't call me a hipster though.  I'm a cutester.  You've probably never heard of it.

Aside from all the hipster/whatever-ster debate, if you are willing to pay $5.03 (at the current exchange rate) for a bowl of cereal, you are a farking idiot-ster.

Adorable? the cutester takes fewer drugs, drinks less and has less sex than its parents - but does dress up more.

Forever infantilized. Great.

I was annoyed at this, until I realized that these people are part of my competition for scarce resources (jobs, money, women, booze, food).

Listen, pal.  I gotta do something.  My one-eyed rescue chinchilla isn't going to get a job and buy his own free-trade, organic, Peruvian corn meal now, is he?

Hipsters have existed in some capacity for about 40 years.  They existed before you heard of a name for them, and they'll continue to exist long after we give them a different name so fret not.  You'll still have young people to shout "hipster" at as you imagine all of the things they do that you don't like.

starsrift: The "cutester" watches Game of Thrones?

I mean it's an immensely popular show, and they should watch it if they like - along with everyone else - but that doesn't seem particularly 'cute'.


That was a misprint. The cutester watches "Game of Thwones" aka Adventure Time.

I get the distinct feeling that Pokemon has something to do with this.

So you're a grown-ass adult paying $239 to play Pokemon(Actually the article made me want to try it. Never tried it yet , even once)

How is less sex, drugs, and drinking  more fun?

Steampunk never had "days", not this side of the Atlantic, anyway.

The European Socialist dream.   I knew people who in their 20s did not know how to make a bank deposit.  Sure were good at withdrawals though.  Accepted family and dole money for years because "I'm not done with my education", and claimed college "shouldn't be any more than a 40 hour week job, otherwise its not fair".

People have been shielding their kids from consequences for years (hello American helicopter parents).


Not really that surprising. I haven't been in to a bank to make a deposit for over 20 years, most everything has been electronic for years....
